A religious leader approaches Jesus with some questions. Jesus’ answers come as a surprise.
Without paying attention, we can drift away from our relationship to Jesus. Sometimes we don’t even notice it. But God calls us to transformation and greater righteousness. In the conclusion to the series, Pastor Wes discusses how God works in our lives to make us more like Jesus.
When we face criticism we can easily drift from God’s purpose for us. Ask yourself, “Who am I living for?” Don’t let the criticisms of others deflate and destroy God’s purpose in you.
Our social media may tell us we have many friends. But everyone can’t have the same access to what’s going on in our lives. Following the example of Jesus, you need 1 or 2 people in your life who are a spiritual friend. In these kinds of friendships God speaks to us and grows us.
God’s gift of his presence comes to us in Jesus. Jesus’ presence shows us how to relate to God and relate to others. This Christmas, give the gift of your presence.
The Christmas season brings many hopes. But if we aren’t careful, those hopes will be based on circumstances we can’t control. The Christmas story is a reminder that our greatest hope is in a baby born in Bethlehem.
In Exodus, we find that God provides a place where He can meet with His people. The Tabernacle and its furnishings were a process of how that could happen. Because of Jesus, we too have a place where no shame, sin, or guilt should keep us away so that we may draw near to Him.
Christ is our daily bread who satisfies our eternal, spiritual need. When daily life distracts us from our relationship with God, the enemy can creep in. Practice thanksgiving, honor your relationship, and trust Him for tomorrow.
It’s the tenth plague over Egypt and God is going to set His people free. But, how He does that is a critical part of the story. Passover and the feast of the unleavened bread are not just for the Israelites, but preparing us for Jesus.
Guest speaker Dylan Kirkland closes the series with an impactful message on how you can’t outrun God’s forgiveness.
No one likes waiting, especially when we have no defined time of how long that will be. In the text for this message, Jesus encourages his disciples as he reads them for their season of waiting. They will need every word.
What do you need to take someone at their word? In the message we look at a dad who was desperate for help and all he had was the word of Jesus. Maybe that is all you need too.
